Considering that a manufacturer and its core part supplier make collaborative RD if the aim of the supply chain is to maximizing profit while increasing the sales and market shares of the serial products, it should at least develop the high-grade and low-grade product; the ratio of price between the higher grade and the lower grade should be greater than the corresponding ratio of the intrinsic value, while the difference of price between higher grade and the lower grade should be less than the ...

This paper is about predicting the outcome of tennis matches of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) using both data and judgments. There are many factors that influence that outcome. An important question is which factors have significant influence on the outcome. We have identified numerous factors and systematically prioritized them subjectively and objectively, so as to improve the accuracy of the prediction. We then used them to predict the ...

How satisfied is each of us with the fulfillment of his life? In this paper after a thorough search of the literature about satisfaction, 58 criteria and subcriteria related to satisfaction or fulfillment were identified and arranged in a hierarchic structure. A process of prioritization known as the Analytic Hierarchy Process is used with the structure, putting in judgments from knowledgeable people to derive priorities for the criteria and subcriteria. A template was then developed for the rea...

Technological innovation as one of the most important competitive strategies for companies has attracted the attentions of companies and governments. In this paper, we present an evaluation method based on data and judgments to rank the technological innovation capability and technological innovation efficiency of enterprises of various sizes in China. Furthermore, based on the efficiency measures, we design a model for the government to optimally allocate innovation resource to businesses, i.e....

The nervous system uses its own kind of mathematical function patterns for both external and internal realities. The conscious part of the nervous system is there to respond to what happens outside by regulating externally received information signals from the senses and the skin and muscles of the body itself. To do that, it needs to communicate with its subconscious using the familiar language of neural firing. In this paper, we show that because reciprocal pairwise comparisons are performed at...

Abstract In this paper we consider many intangible criteria that influence the priorities and ranks of inventions as they contribute to human welfare, by using the Analytic Hierarchy Process. We apply the ideas to evaluate a number of modern inventions along with a few old ones. Both the categories of inventions and the effects they have on human well-being and human progress are considered in this weighting process. Different effects of similar types of inventions could have different propertie...

This paper is concerned with the firing of many neurons and the synthesis of these firings to develop functions and their transforms which relate chemical and electrical phenomena to the physical world. The density of such functions in the most general spaces that we encounter allows us to use linear combinations of them to approximate arbitrarily close to any phenomenon we encounter, imagine or think about. Absence of the technology needed to represent all the senses and the mathematical diffic...

Abstract This paper is concerned with understanding synthesis of electric signals in the neural system based on making pairwise comparisons. Fundamentally, every person and every animal are born with the talent to compare stimuli from things that share properties in space or over time. Comparisons always need experience to distinguish among things. Pairwise comparisons are numerically reciprocal. If a value is assigned to the larger of two elements that have a given property when compared with t...
